'm not fighting to improve schools in red states or in blue states. i am fighting to improve schools in the united states. i am not fighting just on behalf of workers or businesses or the rich or the poor, the 1% or the 99%. i am fighting for american values. they belong to all of us. and if you still believe in that come if you still have hope, if you are still ready to go, i am asking you for your vote!

they are lying? >> yes. i think the president of the united states has lied to the american people but i think he may be lying to himself. i think this president is so totally one-sided in his view of islam, he is so misinformed. he is so willfully ignorant, if you look at his cairo speech that was filled with factual errors. this is a president who simply can't face reality when it comes to people who wanted to kill us. when i see bear bearians -- barbarians torturing an american ambassador, i found those scenes horrifying and i think every american should be enraged. i don't want the commander in chief apologizing and talking about some stupid movie. america has the right to be a free country. america stands for freedom. we should be standing up around the world telling these people, we're not going to give in to you. we are prepared to meet your violence with whatever effort takes. we should hunt every one of them down. >> sean: i would really like to know -- what is the president going to do about it? now we are spending $70,000 on an ad in pakistan that shows our secretary of state, our pres
. the united states of america with their two presence in afghanistan with peace and stability, then you are personally the national interest of pakistan because the known and unknown objective of pakistan within the region is also peace and stability. why talk about the regional approach is to give you confidence for your buck the talk of first doing that. that she must not look at us, but she must look at us from the lens have today in the toasty today the future that pakistan wants for itself as that of peace and stability in. and we have a peaceful, stable region, everything else will work great. so is a march on i think we need to send each other messages. one of the means is to send that message out, that we are keen to work together to ensure that in afghanistan we are able to achieve together long sustainable fees, less admitted that we are not able to achieve. so let's work together. this put our energies together, our resources together. let's not blame each other. let's find time to sit together to work through this together because as i said, this is something that in this re
to me. now, i thought to myself, here 1 ssh -- is a young man, half brother of the united states. barack is not only a multimillionaire, but the most powerful man in the world. yet his half brother can't call him in a time of need, and this same half brother is living in a six by ten hut slum dog millionaire style in the slum of the nairobi. he has to walk through sewage to get to the nearest street. this is a guy not just living in poverty, but in third world poverty. what's going op here? the simple explanation is that barack is a hypocrite. he has made the idea we have obligations to our fellow man, the center piece of his reaction campaign. one of his favorite lines that he recently uttered at the national prayer breakfast is, "we are our brother's keeper." in my film, 2016, by the way, the film is coming to michigan. just look at the website, 2016itmovie.com. [applause] in the film, i asked george that. i said, george, obama said you are our brother's keeper. you are his brother. what has he done to keep you? revealingly, george says, go ask him. hypocrisy seems to be the natural ex
generation face nothing comparable to that of lawmakers in the mid-19th mid-19th century as the united states was on the bring of breaking apart, and the book that we're about to hear about, america's great debate,tles the story of the compromise of 1850, which helped to resolve at least for a while, the conflict over how to bring the vast mexican territory into the united states. the reviewer who did this review for the washington post happened to be don graham, the chairman of the washington post company, who is a student of history. he called this book original in concept and stylish in execution. the compromise that mr. bordewich will tell us about resulted from some of the most creative legislating that the country has ever seen, although mr. bordewich will be quick to point out that the compromise was also deeply flawed. but it did prevent an earlier breakup of the union. this is also a story that includes a magnificent cast of characters. befitting the epic struggles that played out during the course of the great debate. this is the third work be fergus bordewich which explores how sla
. that is protected in the united states by the first amendment. they just do not have the power to change any of that. the fact that, you know, the secretary of state in the united states saying this film is bad and reprehensible and disgusting -- that is an expression of her opinion. it is not a promise to introduce legislation to curb that. they should listen to the prime minister of turkey, the president of egypt, you know, the pakastani is. all these muslim countries. what they are really seeking is an amendment of the first amendment, and that just is not going to happen. >> should there not the laws against inciting, as it were, religious hatred? there are such laws in some countries -- the united kingdom. presumably those are lots you think should exist, no? >> i do not think that such laws should exist. if you look at the history of the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, the freedom of expression in europe and america, this is the culmination of the victory of the individual. it has become one of the most basic human rights. this was not achieved overnight. hundreds of years went b
the killings and to show support for democracy and the united states. hundreds of people stormed the headquarters of the radical islamist group that has been linked to the attack and say that they and not extremists represent the real sentiments of libyan people. >> now to benghazi, libya, where our senior correspondent has more on those pro-democracy demonstrators. >> reporter: well, randi, this is probably one of the few countries where we are seeing mass demonstrations, not just in support of the united states but more condemning the attack that took place on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. people take together streets yesterday in the thousands, demanding democracy, but more importantly demanding an end to these extremist militias whom people and the government here say were in fact behind the attack that took ambassador stevens' life and the life of three other americans. what happened is that at night on friday hundreds of these pro-democracy demonstrators began taking the situation into their own hands and storming various headquarters of known extremist militias in the ci
: the united states has decided to disclose names of those at guantanamo bay. a story this morning said -- harrisburg, pennsylvania. hello. caller: i like c-span. thank you for your program. i would say 85% of the population does not even understand either plan. it is confusing, and there are a lot of scare tactics. i was in the bush and i got a lot of poison ivy on me. this was about six years ago. i had to go to the emergency room because the va is not open on saturday. i went to the emergency room and waited about four hours or whatever. i got a bill for something like $250. just two months ago i was going to virginia to go on a little fishing -- kickback and all that. when i was cleaning my fishing box, my big knife close down on my right index finger and probably needed a couple of stitches. three days later in a balloon up a really big. i went to the emergency room and was there for six hours and received a bill three weeks later. three days after that i went to the medical center and spent two hours there. i got a bill from the first place i went to that was like $115. that is a
and poor people who went out to express gratitude to the united states. but i think this is a reckoning time for president obama. the islamic world served notice on him. >> within these countries we are learning more about extremist groups that are not limit to al-qaida. we hear about others. who are they and how concerned about you on the impact. >> we should be concerned. the egyptian and tun and others that are concerned. they are concerned. we started redemption in libya. people went out and attacked sharia. and people look at these and they have to wonder if they want to live under the control of the celatres. they won 25 percent of the vote in egypt and the insanity among the ranks. they want to cover the pyramidses in egypt and don't want tourism and esset ra. in tunizia and egypt they have to be disciplined by the population itself as we have seen in lib yampt we can't do it from a distance or remote control. >> celafrees is growing in that country. t defends on the setting. what is troubling is the growth of the jihad . that is because we didn't go to the help syrian rebellion.
. even though the united states faces enormous obstacles, most of them self-inflicted, we also have the power and the means to overcome them just as america has done in the past. think about the early years of the cold war in the late 1940's. an era in which politics was every bit as ugly and confrontational as this country has seen before or since. president harry truman was a loyal democrat and a tough partisan. in his 1948 acceptance speech at the democratic convention, he referred to republicans as the common enemy who wanted to stick a knife in the back of the board. republicans called for truman's impeachment on a regular basis. it was said, the purpose of the opposition was to oppose. in the end, in that earlier, hyper partisan environment, it was members of the opposition, republicans like vandenburg and senator richard nixon who helped truman pass the marshall plan that saved western europe from soviet domination. republican support was also critical for the passage of aid to greece and turkey that took the plan of containment into action. and there is nato, which has susta
. this is highest judicial office in the united states, farce enforcement. you have the head of the criminal division who is let off the hook in this to the attorney general still going to be in office who is responsible. someone has to be responsible and accountable. i think that is all we're asking for. when a u.s. agent is killed and this kind of money, waetd taxpayer money takes place. >> gregg: the president says his predecessor is responsible. in fact on thursday. president obama told the uni vision audience, i'm sure you saw this -- i'll quote him here. fast and furious was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. congressman, that is utterly untrue, is it not? >> i think that is shameful for the president to say that. yes, there was a fast and furious program before but it was properly operated. you didn't have people killed or weapons gone astray like this. >> gregg: and it stopped in 2007 two years before fast and furious begin. >> and it was a successful program. i have once chaired the criminal drug policy subcommittee in congress and we have done these
colleagues. >> there are nearly 40 of our jobs bills sitting over in the united states senate. all part of the plan for american job creators. >> congressional republicans want to run away, but you know what? you can run, but you cannot hide from your record. >> they have not passed a budget in more than three years. >> time and time again, my republican colleagues have stalled or blocked perfectly good pieces of legislation to score points with the tea party. >> they have not passed a single appropriation bill. they haven't passed a defense authorization bill for the first time in -- a half a century. these things are usually about as standard as turning the lights on. they haven't done any of them. it is a disgrace. >> there is one very important thing congress is doing before leaving town, and that is passing a bill to fund the government for six months to make sure it does not shut down. but that is not exactly worthy of accolades, considering the only reason they're doing this stop gap bill is that they never sent one of the 12 step bills they were supposed to, to the president's d
of the united states. >> president obama said that he believes in redistribution. >> we're all smarter than that, aren't we? you know it's not so simple. taxes, entitlement, debt, all three of these things must work together and keeping the status quo on all three of these things is impossible. the parties blame each other, and this is about the only thing they are 100% right on because they both took us here, and this is not an issue that gets settled in less than 50 days. 12.5 million people are still out of work. economic growth alone won't save us. it's forecast to only slowly increase over the next few years. will cain is a cnn contributor and ban barber is a graduate scholar in the city of new york. romney's comments caught on hidden camera divided the country into two groups, makers and takers. i refuse to believe the campaign is between winner take owl and karl marx. >> where we try to place these candidates on the spectrum. here's the sin that mitt romney committed dividing americans into 47 versus 53. economic conservatism applies to 100%, making the rich better off, not the poor bette
if this is going to silence his partisan critic in the united states senate who would like to keep control of the united states senate? i don't think so. >> will it even silence republicans? because some have said that no matter what romney releases, that this is not going to end. >> you know, i think that this whole tax release thing is basically a media invention, a partisan invention. he had released two years. now he's released three years. i don't think the public is interested. gallup yesterday released a poll that was really stunning, that the u.s. trust of the media is at an all-time low. 60% of americans have little to no trust in the media, particularly now that we're going into the election season, because the media -- we're chasing these silly stories like the tax returns or the hidden videos and we're not getting to the meat and the substance of the different candidates, of mitt romney and president obama, their policies, whether they're successful or not, and what that means for the future of this country. we're focusing on the wrong things. >> all right, well, let's get back
in a factory, and vanzetti had an odd job after immigrating to the united states and he had started working as a fish vendor. they were ordinary immigrants, but in the united states, they became radicalized of the anarchist leader who advocated violence. but it was ordinary, and i think the fact that they were just too ordinary guys caught in a nightmare that it's part of the reason we are still talking about this today. we think they are there for the grace of god. >> finally, susan tejada come something about your book was april 15th, 1920 you put it in context. it was also the opening day of the boston red sox baseball season, first year without babe ruth. why do you do that, why you put it in the larger context? >> i really hoped to bring their readers and to the story to make it seem real so that the readers might feel they are in the courtroom, they are in the prison and in the death chamber. it's important to make history come alive. >> susan tejada this is your first book right? >> first adult book. >> you've written children's books? what is the name of one? >> i've written childre
for her first official visit to the united states. her trip comes as the obama administration considers lifting remaining economic sanctions against her country. on wednesday she accepted the congressional medal of honor and met with president obama for the first time. i spoke with her earlier today at the plaza hotel here in new york. and here is that conversation. >> rose: thank you for taking time in a very busy schedule to see us. >> pleasure. >> rose: i have two simple questions. where are you in your life at this moment? and where is your country? >> well, they're not simple questions at all. they're the most difficult questions to answer. if you are asking where i am, of course, i can say i am here. but i think my couny and i, we are all at the beginning of the path to democracy. i've often said that this is something that we'll have to construct for ourselves. it's not there smooth and waiting it is something that we have to build up as we go along. >> rose: why dow believe that's true now? >> because we have been given the chance to do it. previously we were not given the chanc
, everyone. there are nearly 40 of our jobs bills sitting in the united states senate. all part of our plan for american job creators that we have been working on all year. these bills cut red tape, remove government barriers that make it harder for small businesses to hire new workers. there are bills to address our debt, expand american energy production and approved projects like the keystone pipeline. there are bills that stop the present's tax hike and fix the tax code. to bring more jobs home from overseas. these are good ideas, all passed with bipartisan support here in the house. president obama will not work with us to find common ground or urged senate democrats to take action. why? it is because democrats have failed to lead. they failed to lead on jobs. the unemployment rate has been over 8% for 43 consecutive months. they failed to lead on energy. everything from gasoline prices to groceries will cost more today. the president's defense suppression -- sequestration threatens our national security and his tax hikes threatens some 700,000 jobs and our country. while democrats hav
as though the united states is under attack, under siege. there's a feeling that something is spinning out of control in the middle east and we need to understand it. >> fareed, thank you. jim, jessica. be sure to tune in sunday night, 8:00 and 11:00. fareed has a fascinating special. global lessons, putting america to work. thanks, everyone. >>> we polled registered voters to identify their top foreign policy concerns what keeps you up at night? syria number five concern, afghanistan four, china, three, number two is immigration and the number one concern was terrorism. tonight, the man whose long service as mayor of new york and public persona ever since has been defined by a single horrific act of terror, rudy giuliani. >> the thing that keeps me up at night, probably more than most, is the fear of an attack, probably because i lived through one and had to be responsible for a city during the worst attack in the history. >> put your mask on. >> very hard to tell people in america not to be worried about terrorism, i wish i could say that to him, you shouldn't worry about it. because the
for the united states. >> allowing our own congress to check our moves. >> i'm not going to play ken rogoff in chess. ken is exactly right. this is actually washington. this is the nature of our political system. they always put off the tough decisions till the last minute. a little point of optimism. this week, the house senate, democrats and republicans, had a hearing on what to do about this tax system that ken and i have so much about that's an abomination, that's an albatross around the neck of the politicians. they said, next year, we've got to do this. and i think 2013 -- hold me to this promise -- i think next year, they do something really big on fixing the tax system. they have to deal with the amt, the estate tax, the tax cliff that's coming, all these things come to a fore in 2013. gets to the point, when will they fix it? when they're right up against the abyss? >> i think if there's a fairly decisive election result, the democrats win across the board or the republicans win across the board, yes. i'm not so sure. i'm just not so sure what they're going to do if we get stuck in
a third of a percent to the total gdp of the united states. sales are brisk, it is a hot item. but there is a problem or two. our report tonight from nbc's stephanie gosk. >> reporter: unchecked, unbridled joy, the iphone 5 is finally in hand, at least it is for those willing to wait in line. apple is calling it the thinnest, lightest, fastest yet. demand is soaring. >> yeah, i already got a missed call on that thing. >> reporter: in 2007, when the late steve jobs launched the original iphone, a million sold in three months. this latest version may sell ten million in the next ten days. in new york, we noticed a majority of customers waiting in line were chinese, carrying lots of cash. many of these iphones will be re-sold at higher prices in china, where sales are tightly controlled. >> i have a blackberry, an old one, which is a bit like showing up at your kid's homecoming dance and doing the twist. it is what apple has done so well, leaving the competition in the dust. but there is one korean company leaving them in the dust. >> reporter: samsung takes aim at the iphone 5 i
of the united states but more condemning the attack that took place on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. people taking to the streets yesterday in the thousands demanding democracy, but more importantly, demanding an end to these extremist militias whom people and the government here say were behind that attack that took the lives of four americans. at night on friday, hundreds of these pro democracy demonstrators began taking situations into their own hands and storming various headquarters of known militias in the city of benghazi, including the headquarters of the militia, and if you'll remember, the libyan government has said that it has detained individuals who are part of that group in association with the attack on the u.s. consulate although they say the group as a whole was not behind that assault. >> thank you so much for that reporting. meantime, president barack obama and u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton will be heading to new york next week for a meeting of the u.n. general assembly. the violence in the muslim world will likely be high on their talking points. they say the p
in the time when the united states was a slave republic. with that thinking it is what allowed for blacks to be -- their labor, native americans, dispossessed of their land. native americans should be dispossessed of their property because they hadn't created an effective capitalist society in a thousand years. >> the thing i love about i'm ran is ultimately in her old age she took social security. you know, i suppose there is a story there about sort of -- how -- you know, we have this sense that on the one hand we don't know -- we want to make it all on our own and built that ourselves. we do tend to avail ourselves of the help, assistance, that exists. matt, you wrote a little bit about this in your piece this week around economic determi determineism. i love this. i never took the -- practically guaranteed student loan, never enjoyed the mortgage interest deduction, that i as a taker, do. you are worried about government spending. yet, there was still something that -- did not sit right about this. >> it is the -- statements that because you fall into this income gap, that your vote,
in the united states states. it would be practically anywhere because the care of the child is the responsibility of the child's parent. in this case, the doctors treating baby m decided she was so sick that damage to her brain was so profound and permanent that there was no point taking extensive and invasive measures to prolong her life. the parents said that it was a matter of love. it was a matter of faith, as you mentioned, that the child should be kept alive. they went to court. they went to court in edmonton, alberta. to the supreme court of canada, and the court decided the child's interest was not in having her life artificially prolonged. the judges heard the case and decided against the parents. it is a strange case. all the stranger because the reason that baby was so sick was because of the parents themselves. >> and so these parents, 34 years old, they are charged with assault and negligence for failing to provide the necessities of life. might there be other charges that are going to be more severe that are down the line? >> that is what this case really turns
not authorize the fast and furious operation that allowed 2000 weapons from the united states, mexico, and they were in the drug trafficking hands. i think that 200 mexicans might have died and also american agent brian terry. there is a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation. shouldn't attorney general eric holder. he should have known about that and if he didn't, should you fire him? >> first of all, i think it's important for us to understand that the fast and furious program was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. when eric holder found out about it, he discontinued it. but i will will tell you that eric holder has my complete confidence because he has shown himself to be willing to hold accountable those who took these actions. >> so this notion that the idea that it started previous administration and as jake tapper points out in a piece this morning that no it didn't start under the actual gun walking did but not the fast and the fearous actual program. >> nine months into the obama administration. fast and furious is as a progra
